I have many years experience of working with anxiety, relationship issues, family problems and depression. As a BACP accredited member I am suitably qualified to work with students on many counselling and psychotherapy courses.
I have a private practice in SW15, two minutes from Putney Main Line Station and a short walk from East Putney underground on the District Line.
Before training in psychotherapy, I had a varied career in education and the NHS, where I worked in Management and Organisation Development. I have also had experience of consultancy work.
I offer short or long term psychotherapeutic work with individuals. I believe the relationship between therapist and patient is an important vehicle for change. My approach is Developmental Jungian. I work with metaphor and dreams, but am also practical and relational.
I am a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology, the IAAP and I am BPC registered.
I am accredited with BACP and the National Counselling Society.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
